Summary

After a break of one day after the opening Concours d’Honneur, the Olympic regatta continued with the first races for the less than ½ ton, 1-2 tons and 2-3 tons classes. As was the case with the Concours d’Honneur, the competing yachts in these three events engaged in what was effectively a mass-start with only a brief interval between the starting time for each yacht.

Six yachts entered Race One of the 1-2 ton class over a course of 19 km course, which consisted of one long and two short rounds). A maximum of four crew members were allowed. The winner was the only foreign yacht, the “Lerina” from Switzerland. The crew consisted of the [Count] and [Countess de Pourtalès] and their nephew [Bernard]. At the helm of the second placed boat “Martha” was [François Vilamitjana], a French sailor of Spanish descent. While the distance between the first and second placed yachts was only 2 minutes, the third placed “Nina Claire” – also from France – was more than 9 minutes behind “Martha.”
